Angioplasty and stenting for below the knee ulcers in diabetic patients: protocol for a systematic review
DiscussionWhile there are several available endovascular techniques for revascularisation, it is unclear which technique has better outcomes for ulcers below the knee in diabetic patients. A systematic review is required to validate and demonstrate these techniques and their outcomes to allow an evidence-based clinical decision.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42017065171
This study investigates the effect of high glucose and hypoxic conditions on TLR4 activation and signalling in vitro and in vivo.
In conclusion, percutaneous flexor tenotomy is an effective, safe, and minimally invasive procedure for the treatment and prevention of toe ulcers in patients with claw deformity.
AbstractIntroductionDiabetic foot ulcers develop with deviations in the distribution of plantar pressure. It is difficult to interpret any alteration in plantar pressure under different conditions of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The aim of this study was to gain a better insight into the variations in plantar pressure with increased duration of diabetes.MethodsPlantar pressure was examined in 1196 participants with or without T2DM. Subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) were assigned to control groups, and those with T2DM were divided into five groups according to diabetes dur...
I, Cauli O Abstract Diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) is a common long-term complication of diabetes mellitus. DFS has recently been associated with adverse effects in brain function which could further impair the quality of life of these patients, as well as increase the social and economic burden, morbidity, and premature mortality of the disease. The current knowledge of neuropsychiatric alterations e.g. cognitive impairment, gait disorder, depression, and quality of life in patients with diabetic foot syndrome is summarized. The cognitive domains altered in DFS are executive function, memory, and psychomotor speed...
ConclusionCholerae should be included in the differential diagnosis of any bacteremic skin and soft tissue infections especially in elderly, comorbid and immune-compromised patients. Well-timed, proper antibiotic and surgical treatments are important in management of the infection to decrease morbidity and mortality.
ConclusionSeverely anemic patients in critical condition can survive necrotizing fasciitis with a well-planned interdisciplinary approach without compromising patient autonomy.
CONCLUSIONS: Although both metformin and BM-MSCs were effective in the healing of experimentally induced skin wounds in diabetic rats, the combination of both agents appears to be a better synergistic option for the treatment of diabetic wound injuries.

CONCLUSIONSeverely anemic patients in critical condition can survive necrotizing fasciitis with a well-planned interdisciplinary approach without compromising patient autonomy.
CONCLUSIONS: These results showed length of surgery and intraoperative blood loss were independent risk factors for PU after liver resection with a long surgical duration. Use of PU prevention strategies are recommended for patients who undergo liver resection with massive intraoperative blood loss and long surgical duration. PMID: 31461399 [PubMed - in process]
Purpose of review The current review addresses one of the most common neurological disorders, diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN). DPN is debilitating, irreversible and dwarfs the prevalence of most other chronic disorders of the nervous system. Its complications include foot ulceration, amputation, falling and intractable neuropathic pain. Moreover, tight control of hyperglycemia reduces the incidence of DPN in type 1 diabetes mellitus but its role in type 2 diabetes mellitus is less clear. Recent findings New therapeutic options to reverse the development of DPN or its associated pain have been proposed but none have sign...
